The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am

Everyone talks about Meryl Streep’s record-setting number of Academy Award nominations, but perhaps even more impressive is the number of Golden Globe Award nominations she’s received: 30, as of this year, with her latest nod for Florence Foster Jenkins.
In fact, the Hollywood Foreign Press seems to be so enamored with Streep that they’ll give her a nomination for pretty much anything (even Mamma Mia!). And now, they’re finally giving her the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.
